NORTH CREEK -- The Adirondack Tri-County Nursing and Rehabilitation Center here celebrated its 40th year serving the community Sunday, Aug. 3.

The members of the North Creek Rotary Club were on hand, all decked out in yellow tee-shirts proclaiming "Rotary At Work." They were there to serve the food, not only to help the event run smoothly but to let the workers who would normally take on this task enjoy the day.

The celebration included tents, a fire engine from North Creek Volunteer Fire Department, horses from Word of Life Ranch in Pottersville and a picnic lunch.

"It was an absolute joy to help serve lunch at this significant milestone for such an important health care resource to our community," remarked Wayne Thomas, president of North Creek Rotary Club. "We search out opportunities to support our community and its other community service organizations, whether it be schools, social outreach programs or those dedicated to enriching the personal and business value of living in the community.

"It was heartening for our members to see the families with children visiting and interfacing with their loved ones who are residents at the center and enjoying a meal together. It is good to know that in some small way we were able to help this happen."

The Rotary Club of North Creek is a service organization, one of over 32,000 Rotary International clubs worldwide.

The North Creek Rotary Club was chartered April 6, 1949. Throughout its 65 years the North Creek club has supported many different local, national and international projects, including, but not limited to, the local Boy and Girl Scouts, the North Country Ministry, North Country Outreach Center and North Creek Health Center.

The club also is responsible for highway cleanup on Route 28 between North Creek and North River, sponsors inbound and outbound foreign exchange students and provides dictionaries for third graders in schools throughout the community.

Support of its annual Canoe Raffle helps make it possible for the North Creek Rotary Club to continue and to expand its services.
